Broadband Light Therapy (BBL)

Our team would be happy to meet with you to discuss your concerns and create a personalized treatment plan to keep you looking and feeling your absolute best.
How does BBL Work?
The light energy delivered by BBL will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, making it clearer, smoother, vibrant and more youthful.
BBL energy allows your physician to treat age and sun spots, small facial veins, and many other skin conditions. Your physician’s treatment plan will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results.
When Will I See Results?
In most cases, patients will need a series of treatment sessions to achieve their full results. However, you are likely to see improvement after every appointment.
How Long is the Recovery Time After Treatment?
You should be able to resume your activities immediately following your BBL treatment. Redness and other side effects are usually mild and temporary. It is critical to protect treated skin from sun damage to prevent possible damage.
